Watch Boston Celtics Vs. Golden State Warriors Live Stream: 54-Game Home Win Streak On Line For Warriors
The high-scoring Boston Celtics invade Oracle Arena, where they will try to stop the Golden State Warriors who are on an incredible 54 game home-court winning streak in a game that will stream live on Friday; a game that will take every ounce of defensive effort that the visiting Celtics can summon up.
Scoring points has not been an issue for the Celtics this season. They come into the Friday game at Golden State leading the Eastern Conference at 105.6 points per game, which also places them fifth overall in the NBA.
Golden State, whose 68-7 record puts them on a pace to shatter the record of 72 wins in a season held by the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls, lead the whole National Basketball Association in scoring with a remarkable 115.1 points per game. So there seems little doubt that fans in Oakland, or who watch the live stream of Celtics vs. Warriors, will be treated to a free-flowing, high-scoring affair.
But on the other end of the court, the Celtics surrender a mediocre 102.3 per game, while the Warriors — whose defense is not their strongest suit either — give up 104.1.
When the two teams met on December 11, Golden State had, at that point, won their first 23 games of the season, setting an NBA record for a season-opening undefeated streak. But the Celtics gave the Warriors all they could handle that night in Boston, finishing regulation tied at 103 then taking Golden State to double overtime before finally coming up short, 124-119 in what still ranks as one of the most memorable NBA games of this season.

The Warriors have defeated the Celtics the last five times the two teams have met. Boston has not come out on top of Golden State in a game since March 1, 2013, and the Celtics have not downed the Warriors in Oakland since March 14, 2012.
In this game, the ESPN-owned site FiveThirtyEight.com — which posts win probabilities for all NBA games based on a complicated statistical formula — sees Golden State with a 90 percent chance of beating Boston yet again, this time by 13 points.
The Celtics come into the game sixth overall in the Eastern Conference with a 43-32 record and will be playing their second of two back-to-back games on a west coast road trip that has already seen them lose to the Los Angeles Clippers and, on Thursday night, the Portland Trail Blazers, after opening the western swing with a win over the Phoenix Suns.
After taking on the Warriors in Friday’s game, the Celtics fly back to Los Angeles where they will face the troubled, 16-59 Lakers before returning to Boston.
